In the last 25 years, horses that won the derby at over 30-1 that went on to win the Preakness:

Charismatic.  That’s it.

Just don’t think we are going to see that kind of pace for the Preakness.Overall,Epicenter has shown a consistent body of work.With Rich Strike,we still don’t know if he is horse for course or if he can repeat that performance on another track.I think Leon rode a great race but if you are a stone cold closer in a 20 horse field ,you have to get a perfect trip.

Isn't this a slap to the face for the TC series?

These horses can’t race as much as they used to.Pretty sad when you think about it.

It feels like a completely different breed from 30 years ago.

I don't care how often they do it, if a horse wins the Derby fair and square, I think he should be the favorite. Everyone in the field was being asked to do something they never did before, so their past performances are not the primary issue. Besides, three year olds in May are still prone to make huge leaps forward. Rich Strike's Equibase numbers have been steadily climbing. Epicenter also ran a career best, and everything went his way, but still was bested. Taking all that into consideration, and adding that RS ran farther, I think the winner would be a deserving favorite, not for HOY, but for the Preakness. It's moot anyway because he's not running, which is a whole other matter..

Well unfortunately, he’s not going in the Preakness. I hope it doesn’t have anything to do with the political stuff that come up.
